ABSTRACT

The completion string is the most important component in petroleum production system
and should be designed and installed precisely, and maintained properly. If the well
suffers scale production problem the importance is multiplied. In this study the four
major completion techniques commonly used for non-organic depositions is introduced.
The subject has been case studied for one of southern Iranian oil wells with inorganic
material production problem. The simulations were run using the Prosper software, and
were followed by sensitivity analysis and conclusive comparisons.
